The field phase starts approx. 2 weeks after the IR has been approved and lasts for approx. 2 weeks depending on the context, scope and purpose of the evaluation
The objective of the field mission is to collect the data and information required for elaborating findings, conclusions and recommendations.
How to do it?
The evaluator(s) (and their team) collect the data and information based on the predefined methodology. In line with the ToR, the service contract and the IR, Welthungerhilfe supports the evaluator(s) during the field mission as agreed.
TIP TO THE EVALUATOR(S):
During data collection: Have your evaluation matrix at hand – this will help you to monitor whether you are able to answer the evaluation questions based on the data collected. Furthermore, it might also help to refer back to the reporting outline to check whether you have the required information at hand.
This might include to:
Who is responsible and involved?
Data collection documentation and analysis is the responsibility of the evaluator(s). However, the accompaniment of the evaluation mission requires time and other resources and it should be carefully considered who should accompany the evaluator(s) and the implications of the accompaniment for learning and/or accountability. The evaluation manager is by all-means on “stand-by” for any decisions necessary on the evaluation schedule and methodology.
What do I get?
Data and information required is available for generating findings, conclusions and recommendations.
